Karla Wolf says
I tried to do the Clare Hart badge. No credit for ones I’ve already completed. Had one new free one and got credit for that one. Do I have to buy gems in order to buy the episodes to complete this badge?
You can redo any episode you own, but when it’s a redo you must hit “start case” for it to count for a badge. I have all the episodes done, so know redoing an episode counts 🙂
Karla Wolf says
ok thanks so much!
You’re very welcome!
Love these marathons! all seem pretty easy to do!! getting ready to get them started!
Very nice selection of games that shouldn’t be to difficult to complete.
I love these marathons. While we all gripe a bit at Pogo creating new games that make purchasing power-ups almost a necessity, it’s nice to see them giving back with these free badges (and a wee challenge to boot).
Personally, it’s a real treat, as I decided to stop buying badges – at least for awhile. I have so many unfinished albums, it’s ridiculous, and I want to complete them before loading up again. (Ask me how difficult it is to walk away when there’s a good sale – yikes)
Perfect! Thank you, Pogo!
This is going to be a fun Marathon!!
Hurray!! 10 more badges with a chance at an 11th!!
Thank you, Pogo!
Good selection of games looking forward to starting them .
good luck all
Cookie Connect – You must hit next after your game in order to get credit. If you hit the replay button it will not count towards the badge.
What is the Final Attraction in Jet Set? Would that be the airplanes?
Most of them seem either easy or not too bad but Dang, 3 HOGs and the one I really dislike, Clue, has 12 levels without hints. I really really dislike the Find the Difference scene. Oh Well, I’ll just do Episode 1, that’s the one I always do.
I’ll do the easy ones and games I like first, work my way towards the end but not sure if I’ll get them all done by Valentine’s Day. It’s OK though, I’m happy to have the ten free badges to do.
I used the Search box and yes, Final Attraction is the plane so this was easy peasy, 5 San Francisco planes.
What would be do without BH? Again I looked at Pogo’s game instructions and of course Final Attractions is not mentioned anywhere.
The first badge they had for this they used the term “boss” level, they changed the wording when nobody could figure it out, except for 1 person on BH.
Sounds about right, lol How about calling it the Airplane level? I think everyone would understand that. Or even Final Flight? Final Attraction sounds like a movie, you got your Main Attraction and then the Final Attraction. 🙂
I remembered who it was that knew what “boss level” meant. It was William Porygon.
Yes, it’s the last game in any city, the one with the airplane icon.
Connie Hayley says
Finished all in about 4 hours! Yippie
I’m done also!
Jewel Adademy, anyone knows of a level with tons of red jewels?
Looks like this badge can take for ever if not.
There is no 1 level b/c the jewels change every time you play the level. It didn’t take long at all.
Great another marathon looking forward to finishing all these badges. A nice selection of games. Everyone
is very doable. Thanks Pogo.
i kept wondering also about the red jewels…tried to find where any stated about it but started playing i guess my red jewels look pink..but at least im getting credit for red somehow lol
They are pink…lol
Any tips on how to pop all the red balloons in Poppit Party? Thanks!
The easiest way is using a costume with the color eraser, but with all the different power ups that come with the costumes it really isn’t difficult.
the poppit bingo
for the most gold balloons
i have finished a lot of the marathon
and that one is a drag
anyone know a good level for them?
It has nothing to do with rooms or levels. The golden balloons are a power up that you need to use. You purchase them with your cactus cash that you earn from playing. And always use the Cactus Cannon at the end. It took me 2 games.
…2 games…!!!! How did you manage that….they don’t even come up for me….!!!
I was lucky, and got the GB power up 3 times in each of the 2 games I played. I just trashed what I didn’t want.
Took me 3 games, was very fast!
Connie Hayley says
PS- this marathon put my badge total @ 6,025! woop woop
Congrats & Welcome to the 6K Club!
is there any way you can get back to the level number 1 on jewel, plus moms where do you find the easer on poppit party i never heard of that. thank you
Yes, you can just scroll back to level 1, but I did new levels and ended up with 2 bonus badges. And the red jewels count even if you don’t win the level, so you may want to try and continue.
The color eraser is a power up that a few of the costumes have. Lura has the list here…
Took a few hours and am done the marathon now. Not a bad selection of badges.
Natasha Handschumacher says
Finished mine last night. Was easier than a couple in the past
I was hoping to spread out the marathon, but ended up finishing all 10 badges today.
I really prefer this sort of marathon over the site-wide ones. And sure like 10 new badges gifted! A nice mix of games that Pogo must have put some thought into. A little something for everyone.
Thoroughly enjoyed! Just wish I didn’t hurry it to complete all the badges. 🙂
That was one fun Marathon! I liked all the games very much. I think Pogo did a great job with this one!
with this marathon I went to 5000 plus badges…………………………………blessings all………………………….
Congrats & Welcome to the 5K Club!
Is there a way to just choose the badges you want without opening all of the gifts? I really dislike Clue and hate having to do it without hints is horrible for me.
I loved this Marathon! Thank you, Pogo!
for what is worth, for the marathon #3 pop all the red balloons , i found if you play easy setting. when you enter the game with the costumes., in the upper left hand corner there are three circles . the third circle is where you adjust the setting on the game.. i found it easier to pop the red balloons on this easy setting.
Suz,, which costumes have the color eraser?
Lura has them all listed here…
Also does anyone know which level you get more pink jewels?
There is no specific level b/c the color of the jewels change every game.
Ty you Suz, you are the best. 🙂
You’re very welcome!
Why would they do this when the Olympics are starting??
What does 1 thing have to do with the other?
I finished it on my main account yesterday, and will be finished it on my 2nd account in less than an hour. And should have it done on my 3rd account by dinner.
There are 7 days to complete the Marathon, and that can be done with less than an hour of play a day.
Pogo should have named this the Winter Olympics Decathlon Challenge:
Finish 10 get a Gold badge, 9 Silver badge, 8 Bronze badge. ⛷
Brenda M. says
Well, I have one left to do, the Word Whomp one, I saved the best for last, that’s one of my most favorite games. I love these Marathons! I hope Pogo keeps Marathons and Site-Wide challenges coming…bring ”em on!! 🙂
Have fun, everyone! 🙂
Hi… Is the golden balloon a power-up if so do you use them in beginning or the end an how do they work please someone help me
You use the golden balloon power up from the beginning to the end of the game, as often as you get it. If another power up appears just throw it in the trash can, right below Spike. You are not charged for the power ups that you trash.
And always use the cactus cannon at the end.
Hi Suz, I seem to remember a response from you awhile ago regarding how you “optimize” your play in Poppit Bingo ?? Hope your memory is better than mine … 🙂 Wwho
On this topic my mind is sharp as a tack, but on other things 🙂
Here’s my basic Poppit Bingo strategy…
Always play in the highest room available to you. The tickets cost more, but the rewards are much better too.
Always play 4 cards.
Always use power ups. I prefer to just use the golden balloon power up & the power up with the question mark on it. That gives you more prize balloons.
Never call a bingo during the game UNLESS it’s 1 of the first 3.
Always use the cactus cannon.
I’ve made it to rank 85 using that strategy and have 3.5 million in cactus cash and over 100,000 tickets. I’ll never run out of either. And I still love the game as much as I did the first time I played it.
That was it … thanks SUZ!.. I’,ve saved it for future reference and now I’m am off to Poppit Bingo to close out the Valentines Marathon! Wwho
Happy to report have finished the marathon. For the games don’t much care for, I split them up as to not get frustrated or bored with them. Most went smoothly in that the play went as expected. Others were not so nice and took much longer but still enjoyed all. 🙂
Yesterday I was happy that I got 2 bonus badges on my account while doing the Marathon Badge in Jewel Academy. Just imagine my delight this morning when I got 9 bonus badges on Holly’s account while doing the same badge. Now I can’t wait until I get to that badge on my 3rd account to see how many bonus badges I pick up 🙂
robert moon says
how do you buy the golden balloon power up in poppit bingo ?
You click on the + sign to the right of the lightning icon, the icon used for the power ups. You use your cactus cash that you earn from playing the game. The amount of cactus cash that you have is the number on the left.
Do NOT click on the + sign next to your cactus cash or you will be spending gems.
robert moon says
ok tyvm for the help
You’re very welcome!
I just finished the Valentine’s Marathon. 🙂 GL everyone 🙂
Almost done! That was fun! I spread them out so that it would be fun, not too repetitive or boring, and I really enjoyed it.
I still have some Mahjong Garden to finish. I can’t want to play that more than 3 times a day as I don’t like it, but it should be done by Sunday evening.
I tried many times to progress in Cookie Connect while playing for that badge, but it seems that game is bent on making us have to buy power-ups, so I eventually gave up each time and went to the early easier levels.
Good Luck to all!
Can someone “show” me where this golden balloon power appears and how I can activate it? I cannot seem to find it anywhere. Thanks in advance!
When you are in the game you will see Spike on the bottom right. When your power up meter is full his large balloon will fill up and show you a power up. You will also see a number next to it and that will tell you how many power ups you own. If there is no number that means you need to purchase the power ups with your cactus cash, and you earn the cactus cash just by playing.
If the power up is not the golden balloon that you want you can just hit the trash can under Spike to get rid of it, and after you pop 2 more numbers you will get another power up. You don’t get charged for the power ups you put in the trash can. If it is the golden balloon power up you click Spike’s balloon and you will then see golden balloons on each of your card.
You can see a picture of the golden balloon power up just click on the How to Play tab on the game page and scroll down towards the bottom.
MomsBassetHound – THANK YOU!!! I’ve been playing for a while and never knew to pop that balloon!!!! You are always so helpful!!
You’re very welcome!
I finished all of badges on my main account with no problem. I decided to work on Cookie Connect but am now experiencing a problem…the cookies won’t move. I have tried the Edge Browser, IE 11, and Chrome. I also read the forum and noticed that others are experiencing the same problem. Only 3 badges left to go. Sure hope that Pogo fixes the glitch.
Jon C says
I finished all 10 marathon badges
i finished all 10 marathom badges today. i enjoy them very much and thanks for the free badges….
I have played several Mahjong Gardens without using a hint and have not received credit. I did use undo, but that shouldn’t matter should it? Am I supposed to use a certain tile set?
Any tips would be appreciated. 🙂
No, it’s just says to win a game using 3 hints or less. No specific tile set or puzzle set was required.
I’m sure that I used the undo while working on 1 of my accounts, so that’s not the reason.
Have you checked your badges on your profile to see if you have already earned it? That is the only place that is 100% accurate.
Thanks Suz. I waited awhile, then played without using undo. I don’t know if that had anything to do with why I wasn’t getting credit, but by not using it I got the badge! Marathon complete! 🙂
Is anyone not getting credit for popping all the red balloons in Poppit! Party? I finished one game using the first costume “Spike” because he has 2 pins to pop balloons with. I popped all the red balloons; got them all, but it didn’t count. I didn’t win the game nor did I pop all the prizes, but I did get rid of all the red balloons. I must be doing some requirement wrong.
I completed all 10 badges on time to receive the special award badge but have not received it.
Pogo Llama said it could take until the end of the month before the completion badge is awarded.
Does any one know when we get our badge for completing these. I don’t have mine.
Pogo Llama said in her weekly blog that they should be awarded by 2/28.
I just received the completion badge on my account, but not on my other 2 accounts. Hopefully they will get the badge awarded overnight!
I just got mine too….sometime in the last two hours it was awarded to me.
It really is an adorable badge.
I got mine as well but not the Monopoly participation background and i did the Wednesday badge. Must not have been enough to qualify for that one however.
There was a problem with that also, see the BH Q&A.
Received the completion badge. Very cute.
I wasn’t able to play during this marathon but I just noticed I never received these badges in my gifts. Can anyone tell me how to get these badges or who to contact in Pogo?
Thanks for the help!
If they weren’t opened before the Marathon ended they were removed, and you can’t get them back.
